first L4D2 dedicated server problems, pls help!
Hi all, this is my first time setting up a dedicated server, so bear with me. Ive got it somewhat figured out, but i have something specific in mind and i dont know how to do it. so far, i have set up the server on my lan, with no problem connecting with my 4 local machines, but no remote users can join. If i set up the server as an internet server, remote connections work fine, but no one on my local net can join. how the heck can i get both local and remote machines connected?

Ideally, i will be able to host the server as a LAN server that still allows remote access, for 4 local machines and 2 remote ones. I have a custom set of server cvars i want to play with, but most require cheats to activate. So clearly it needs to be a lan game, since L4D2 wont allow cheats on any type of internet game at all. if anyone knows a way, let me know, but otherwise i need a lan game that allows outside connections. is this impossible??? I would also like to increase maxplayers on campaign if possible, and i put that into the launcher, but it doesnt seem to work. and if i try to put it in while the server is up, it doesnt allow it.

Thirdly, what cmdrate commands should i enter for best performance on 1.2 mbps upload connection?

heres my launch batch:

c:\hlserver\left4dead2\srcds.exe -command -game left4dead2 +ip XX.XXX.XXX.XX +hostport 27020 +map c1m1_hotel +maxplayers 8 +exec server.cfg +clientport 27020 -maxclients 12

and heres my server cfg
